Project Runway was my first class, taught by my blog friend, Colette Copeland of A Bird in the Hand. I have been following her blog (and buying some of her pictures) during the last year and love her style, often thoughtful, sometimes witty, and totally appealing. In this class, we decorated three vintage dresses on a clothesline.
My intention was to do a full "outline" of a class but I would have to go on forever! This, though, is the beginning of the project...one must think and think. This is my dear friend, Donna, doing just that.
This is a class member who is beginning to stitch her project. We were given full reign to stitch, glue, do whatever we wanted to do. Most of us brought our own supplies but Colette also brought us some cool items.
This is such a sweet dress. The material in the background is French print and was given us to Colette who is from Canada and is bilingual.
This is a totally different interpretation, in soft pinks.
This is a lovely set, in sepia, brown and black.
Here's another one that uses country-like materials, just charming.
Here is one with darling images. I see an adorable Paper Whimsy girl in the middle
I believe this one was created from family photos. What a sweet looking grandmotherly woman!
Isn't this a dear piece? Such an adorable little girl!
This woman is using a lot of embroidery on her piece.
Here is mine, still in process, but almost done. The pictures are baby pictures of Kat, Jud and I. I changed the dress to knickers for Jud. If you click on this, you an see the baby pictures better.
And this is me and the lovely Colette. Not really the best people of either of us. She is a small, pretty woman. I am the one with the craft apron by Jem and my smile is getting cheesier and cheesier.
A lovely time was had by all. It was such a cooperative group. Everyone shared their supplies and ideas so readily. I really enjoyed it.
